    Well, do you? I mean, Hasbro has already released a Masterpiece Starscream with cartoon accurate colours and might be hesitant to make a second attempt for a much higher price tag. Consider that Hasbro never sold the trailers for Optimus and Rodimus Prime, and they might consider Starscream's coronation set to be a needless expense. Judging by previous releases, Hasbro could always release a stripped-down version instead if they think that the design changes to the figure are worth a mass retail. What do you think?

    I highly doubt it. (If it's stripped down that kind of defeats the purpose)

    Hard to tell considering they haven't even confirmed a domestic release of MP-10 yet.

    If they DO release MP-11, I hope they do leave out the whole cape & crown crap. It's a useless & unnecessary additional expense, and I'm pretty sure the only reason Takara are doing it is to justify the higher price with filler gimmicks and help make the box art look distinctly different from the previous G1 deco Screamer.

    Who knows.... As long as TRU keeps stocking MP figures, I'm sure Hasbro will at least consider it.

    Let's get MP10 before discussing MP11.

    there is a chance, seeing as it is a new mold practically and starscream did sell pretty well last time. I still need him cause he was impossible to find (anyone who says otherwise is just silly, even aaron archer had to order his online cause he couldn't find one)

    I'm willing to bet we will see a domestic release of Starscream stripped of the coronation set, but will probably not see a Skywarp or Thundercracker repaint of it in the U.S.

    After a trailerless Prime, of course.

    My bet is they use this retool to give us a US release of Thundercracker.

    Happen and I would love to see are two separate things.

    But how cool would that be. You know what would be lame? Hasbro MP Starscream 2.0., MP Thundercracker 2.0, no Hasbro release of MP Skywarp 2.0.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it does see a domestic release. Starscream is a fairly recognizable character and it's been quite awhile since the domestic release of MP-03, so it would probably sell fairly well. Highly doubt we'll see any of the other Seekers, though, after how poorly MP Skywarp did.

    Do we know how poorly MP Skywarp did?

    I keep hearing different stories. Was he over ordered? Or did he do poorly.

    I wonder how he sold in comparison to MP Grimlock and MP Rodimus. I think MP Grimlock and Rodimus was ordered better, that's why we are not seeing as much stock.

    Also, the problem with the other seekers is that they are not packaged in Jet mode. I would try that this time around. Maybe get the jet lovers out there. Even though, cartoon accurate TC may not convince a jet lover.

    ^he was over-ordered because starscream was way underordered, combine with the facts that it was a lesser known character and there were a good chunk of fans that waited for clearance, he did not do well at all

    I wonder if he sold at TRU if he would have done better.

    I mean when do you see MPs on clearance at TRU? Plus they may have ordered him correctly.

    Still would love to know if he sold as much as Hot Rod or Grimlock. If he sold as much as Grimlock, TC deserves a release.

    Yeah, and I hate to say that I think we'll see this Starscream before a Thundercracker, for those wanting an "official" Thundercracker stateside. TakaraTomy will be milking their mold, though, so for those who are still wanting a Thundercracker, your day's coming.

    I can actually see Hasbro including the coronation set, seeing how recognizable the movie is here. I'm thinking that it may be at the expense of other things (paint apps, etc.?), though. I would be very happy with just the figure, myself.
